I think we can all agree it has been a wild couple of months!! Here's what we know now.
EARLY LEARNING & CHILD CARE IS ESSENTIAL!
those immersed in the child care industry) know without a doubt, that early learning and nurturing learning environments make a positive difference in the lives of young children.
As the children you care for and educate come back to your site or as you re-open and welcome children back, please be on the look out for emotional stress.
The children you are welcoming back lost their daily routine, their trusted teacher connection, friends, learning, and so much more when COVID-19 abruptly changed their lives.
The Early Learning Coalition of Palm Beach County has partnered with Eric Mundt, a licensed marriage and family therapist. You may want to encourage parents who may have suffered a devastating job loss or loss of a family member due to COVID-19 to call Eric and his team. This resource is for you, your families, and most important...Palm Beach County's young children.
As always, remember -- you are mandatory reporters for any suspicion for child abuse or neglect.
With Gratitude and Admiration,
All Of Us @ The Early Learning Coalition of Palm Beach County
